Our Log Cabins are available for self-assembly or with our installation service, if you take our installation service the cabin will be delivered separately prior to our team of installers arriving and there’s some important base preparation work you’ll need to do in advance. If you are considering self-assembly we have a range of installation video guides to give you an idea of what’s involved.
Log Cabin Base Preparation
The successful installation of your log cabin and indeed the longevity of your cabin will largely be dictated by the base on which the cabin sits. We recommend a firm, level base made of concrete or concrete slabs to support the weight of your cabin. All of our log cabins have been manufactured with the use of cutting edge technology, utilising high precision engineering machinery to mill the timber.
The logs are designed to interlock perfectly to prevent water and wind ingress. Due to the way the logs are stacked on top of each other and interlock, there is little room for tolerance. The Log Cabin can cope perfectly well withstanding any vertical force, but will not cope trying to withstand lateral forces if the base isn’t level. With this in mind please take a look at our Log Cabin Base Preparation Guide which contains all the information you need.
